Rain Man

Fast-talking yuppie Charlie Babbitt learns the lesson of a lifetime when he meets a brother he never knew he had. Raymond Babbitt (Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman) is an autistic savant who has spent most of his life in an institution. But when their father leaves his fortune to Raymond, Charlie takes his unusual older brother on a cross-country odyssey neither will forget. Other Oscars include Best Picture 133 minutes.
Wonderful performance by Hoffman. Fine introduction to savant syndrome.
